New additions to ScotlandsPeople

It has recently been announced that there will be new additions to the wills and testaments at ScotlandsPeople. The years 1902-1925 are to be released later this year.

They have also released the Catholic Parish Registers for births and baptisms for 1703 to 1908. The website suggests you read about the Catholic Parish Registers before using the database.

The Generations Project

Did you enjoy watching Who Do You Think You Are this spring? If you liked the celebrity family histories but wished you could see family histories of ordinary people then The Generations Project is for you.

This is a project that follows ordinary people on their search for their family’s history. The episodes can be viewed online and are between fifty and sixty minutes long. They cover many different areas of research. The main idea is the story behind the search for your family history.

Why not check it out at The Generations Project.
